New Service: QWELL Digital Counselling for Parent Carers & Young People

Derbyshire Mental Health Forum have launched a new digital counselling support service commissioned by Derby and Derbyshire CCG.

QWELL has been live since 1st September 2019 and is available to Parents and Carers and Children and Young People across Derby and Derbyshire.

Parents and carers can access Qwell here

The service for children and young people is available here.

The service provides a safe, confidential way for Parents and Carers of young people under the age of 18 to access emotional wellbeing and early intervention support that looks to cover a range of mental health issues.

The service is free and requires no formal referral, instead only requiring the user to set up an account on the website. QWELL’s counselling team are fully qualified, under current professional membership and have years of experience as well as having access to a range of modalities in order to meet service user’s needs.

The online counselling team are available from 12 noon to 10pm Monday to Friday and 6pm to 10pm at weekends, 365 days a year, providing a much needed out-of-hours service for emotional support in an accessible and convenient way. We hope that you are able to inform your staff of QWELL’s offer so that they in turn are able to direct appropriately towards the service.

To support this, QWELL will be deploying Integration Workers to promote and create awareness of the service. If you feel this would be useful and require more information, please email
